Does this describe you? You're the parent of a 2-11 year old and you feel
Who wouldn't be when your child ignores you, especially when you've threatened and repeated yourself 10 times trying to get them to go to bed, eat or put their shoes on.
Your child has a tantrum in the middle of a supermarket and you just don't know how to handle it. You don’t want to be the parent that gives in, but you don’t want to react harshly and risk harming your relationship with child.
Daily 'Aaaaagh' moments
You work really hard to be calm and patient and suddenly you flip. Your buttons get pushed when your child is rude or stubborn and you wind up shouting or over-reacting and then feel so guilty.
Anything for a quiet life?!
You want clearer rules and boundaries, but you find they wear you down with nagging and whining so you wind up giving in.
You've read a lot of parenting books, but you want help finding solutions for to your situation and you want someone trusted to turn to for support.
You don't want to repeat negative experiences
from your upbringing.
You know how much more is known about healthy child development, and are certain you want a close, loving relationship with your child based on trust and understanding.
A personal message from, me, Camilla
Here I explain to you why I created The Parent Survival Academy and what I hope you gain for it as a parent.
Handle bedtimes, or mealtimes without a battle
You'll learn how to get your child to go to bed and stay in bed without a fuss, get dressed and eat breakfast willingly and leave home feeling so relieved that you didn't need to raise your voice or resort to threats or bribes.
You know how to avoid or shorten tantrums and meltdowns
You'll learn how to help your child to be more emotionally balanced and able to express emotions - so instead of hitting out at you, they tell you what's upsetting them. At the supermarket. you can say 'No' to the chocolate and they accept it!
Your child listens and willingly does what you ask
You'll quickly learn the strategies from within The Parent Survival Academy to get your child to have a bath without drama and happily leave the playground without a meltdown! Leaving you with so much more time and energy for the fun stuff!
Join like-minded parents of toddlers and young children who want them to thrive in an emotionally supportive, confidence-building, calm home environment.
Read what other parents have to say
This course has helped me to shift my parenting approach and things with my daughter are so much better
Don’t think twice, invest in something that will help your family to feel more connected and able to address your issues in a much calmer way. The results are just amazing.
I wasn't sure we had enough problems with our son to justify the course; but I’m so thankful I joined because I learnt to have more fun with him & better ways to respond when he gets grumpy
He gained a lot of confidence and is now so eager to show me all the good things he does.
Since implementing the tools Camilla taught us, our little boy will now brush his teeth, get dressed and leave the house without a fuss and he’s so proud of himself.
We can’t thank Camilla enough for providing us with these lifelong tools, which will help at every stage of parenting.

The Parent Survival Academy
For parents of toddlers to 10 year olds who want the tools, strategies and principles to raise children with compassion and boundaries
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHILD
The key to any good relationship is understanding the other person, this includes the parent/child relationship. This is the reason I cover it in depth in module one.
- Dive into neuroscience - understand how kids' brains work and what drives behaviour!
- Recognise your child's temperament and learn to adapt your parenting accordingly to bring out their best qualities.
- Mindful parenting and how to help yourself stay calm and have a positive influence on your kids and be a good role-model.
STRATEGIES FOR CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR & TANTRUMS
Learning what to do when conflict arises makes the stress of parenting melt away. Module 2 gives you simple processes and strategies that are mind-blowingly effective!
- Avoiding, handling, and recovering from tantrums and challenging behaviour - solutions for bedtime battles and mealtime madness!
- How to respond with love and preserve your child's dignity when things get tricky.
- Helping children regulate their strong emotions so that they can express their feelings with words not actions
ENCOURAGING POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR & RAISING
Children who like and believe in themselves will be self-assured, resilient and will want to behave well and listen to you.
- How to empathise with your child's feelings to reduce conflict, increase cooperation.
- Learn the best ways to connect with your child - especially helpful for those typical moments of conflict around sleep and food!
- Raise your kids confidence, resilience and ability to express their needs.

Calm routines for mornings, bedtimes and mealtimes without nagging and reminding. Giving you confidence as a parent.
Positive discipline - create firm boundaries for your child's security and a calmer home life. Showing you how to say 'no' and not feel guilty.

How to Stay Calm
I know how often we reach boiling point raising kids, so I bring you this stress-reduction mini-course with meditation teacher Lauren Bear. It shows you how to radically lower your stress and feel calmer and more relaxed - so you avoid so many of those 'flip-out' moments.
Take inspiration from others
We found ourselves in a rut as our daughter was having so many tantrums and we didn’t know how to help her.
Doing Camilla’s course meant we began to respond so differently to her and the results have been amazing - many less battles and feeling so much more connected. We’ve recommended Camilla to many of our friends too!
I took Camilla’s course because I wanted to work on connection and communication with my children. My son was very impulsive and I was constantly telling him off.
It was so helpful to show me a more compassionate approach but also gave me confidence to be clearer and firmer on the boundaries. I’m so glad I made the investment.
We took Camilla’s course because we were constantly fighting with our little boy to get him to listen to us. He used to run off and hide when we asked him to do something and we were going round and round in circles.
We learnt how to handle him better and how to speak in a way to get him to listen. The results have been brilliant. He’s now so happy to do what we ask (not always but SO much more) and we feel so much better about being parents.
Olly and Jasmine Nichols
Hi, I'm Camilla.
I believe that parenting is a skill that you can learn. Just like any other job you’ve had in your life, when you get proper training, it is so much easier!
If you met me, you might think I’m very chilled. Actually, by nature, I’m really not. My kids regularly remind me I can get quite 'stressy'.
But, I’ve learnt how to stay calm and connected with my four kids and hold the boundaries. I'm not perfect but I have to tools to recover when I make mistakes
I've had really challenging experiences over the years and I totally understand how what it's like to be a parent with a huge mix of emotions, I've felt:
and at the same time deep love and total devotion to my kids (hence all the frustration).
I believe that as a parent you need support that is non-judgemental and encouraging - who wants to feel more guilt?
So I teach you:
Evidence-based, thoroughly researched,tried-and-tested parenting tools, processes and techniques to transform your family life.
